ST. PETERSBURG — La Segunda Bakery & Café, a family-owned, Ybor City-based business founded in 1915, plans to open a new location in St. Petersburg March 21.
La Segunda’s latest cafe will be located at 2436 Fourth St. N., in the Holiday Plaza. In 2018, it opened a location on Kennedy Boulevard just west of Dale Mabry Highway.
The 1,820-square-foot St. Pete cafe, according to a news release, will offer grab-and-go meals, indoor seating for 40 guests and a pet-friendly patio that can accommodate 28 customers. It will offer many of the same menu items as its Tampa locations, including made-to-order Cuban sandwiches, salads, cafe con leche, guava and cheese turnovers, quesitos, Italian cookies and flan.
“We really love this area of St. Petersburg,” fourth-generation owner Copeland More states in the release. “It has a great mix of residential and office space, and it’s also very walkable. We can’t wait to bring a slice of Ybor City to the Sunshine City and greet our new neighbors with the smell of fresh-baked Cuban bread. We often have visitors from St. Petersburg at our two Tampa locations, so we’re very excited to continue our expansion efforts across the bay.”
The original La Segunda Bakery is located at 2512 N. 15th St. in Ybor City. Founded by Juan More, it’s the world’s largest producer of Cuban bread, churning out some 18,000 loaves every day.
